Straight from a press release comes word that the fast-tracked comedy CAMPING has a debut date of SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14. We also attach the official trailer.
To celebrate her husband Walt’s 45th birthday, the obsessively organized and aggressively controlling Kathryn gathers together her meek sister, her holier-than-thou ex-best friend and a free-spirited tagalong – and what was supposed to be a delightful, back-to-nature camping trip quickly becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman-on-woman crime that won’t soon be forgotten.
Starring Jennifer Garner (“Love, Simon”; Emmy nominee and Golden Globe winner for “Alias”) and David Tennant (“Jessica Jones,” “Doctor Who”), the comedy series CAMPING launches its eight-episode season SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14 (10:00-10:30pm), exclusively on HBO. The show is written and executive produced by Lena Dunham (creator and star of HBO’s GIRLS), Jenni Konner (executive producer of HBO’s GIRLS) and John Riggi, and is based on the British series of the same name created by Julia Davis and produced by Baby Cow Productions.
CAMPING follows a group of old friends as they arrive at the underwhelming Brown Bear Lake campsite to celebrate a landmark birthday, sparking heightened emotions, latent tensions (sexual and otherwise) and memories they’d rather forget.
Here is that trailer:
Oh, that “smell nice” moment was perfect!
Other series regulars include Juliette Lewis (Oscar nominee for”Cape Fear”), Arturo Del Puerto (“Independence Day: Resurgence”), Ione Skye (“Fever Pitch”), Janicza Bravo (directing credits include HBO’s DIVORCE) and Brett Gelman (“Stranger Things”).
“When we saw Julia Davis’ hilarious U.K. ‘Camping,’ we knew this was the most fun concept for writers and actors,” observe Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner. “We are so excited by our cast. We are so excited by this story. We are so excited to make you never want to go to the woods again.”
CAMPING is written and executive produced by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner for A Casual Romance; written and executive produced by John Riggi; executive produced by Julia Davis for Hush Ho; Christine Langan for Baby Cow Productions; executive produced by Ilene S. Landress and Tom Lassally; co-executive produced by Adam Countee; pilot directed by Jenni Konner.
